Tower Teardown

130426 Water Tower 15Last Friday and Saturday the “skyline” in Goshen lost a familiar sight. The old water tower, built in 1896, was demolished. The decision to tear down the tower was made last year after it was found that it would be cheaper to tear it down than to repaint it. A crew from Michigan came in, cut it down in pieces and sold the scrap to metal recyclers. It was an interesting thing to watch and made for great pictures.130426 Water Tower 06
